The second night of the Stadium tour has taken place, at the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, Florida. 

After Tommy Lee abandoned the Motley Crue drum stool after five songs on the first night in Atlanta, the question on everyone's lips in Miami was how he'd manage on night two. After all, drumming with broken ribs is not mean feat, especially for a powerhouse hitter like Lee.

"The fact that Tommy was told by the doctor to not play with four broken ribs and he beasted half our show is a miracle,” posted Nikki Sixx. “We are a band and are proud of his strength. He is doing the whole tour and day by day adding more songs. What a fucking animal."

Well, he managed three songs, pummelling his way through Wild Side, Shout At The Devil and Too Fast For Love before standby sticksman Tommy Clufetos took over. Lee returned later for set closer Home Sweet Home. Let's hope he recovers further before the next show at the Camping World Stadium in Orlando, on Sunday night. 

Below you'll find a gallery of all five artists on opening night: Def Leppard, Motley Crue, Poison, Joan Jett and Classless Act. Use the arrows to navigate through the shots.
